Autumn 2022

A very special visitor - 15/12/22

Kingston St. Mary Primary School were very lucky to receive a visit from a very important person, who is usually very busy around this time of year!











KS2 Christmas Carol Concert - 14/12/22


At St Mary's Church, Kingston St. Mary, Robins & Woodpeckers classes gave a stunning performance of Christmas Carols, old & new, along with beautifully recreated tableaux depicting the Christmas story and some reflective readings.


The concert was followed with mince pies and mulled wine to start the festive season.


Whole School Trip to the Pantomime - 13/12/22

The Whole School boarded buses to the Northcott Theatre in Exeter to watch the very colourful and very funny pantomime, Robin Hood.  It was a very modern twist on the legendary tale of Robin & Marian with singing, dancing and plenty of audience participation.  The children loved it but I think the adults enjoyed it more!

Christmas Jumper Competition 2022

The Digital Leaders ran a Christmas Jumper competition with prizes for each year group.  All pupils were invited to design a Christmas jumper using our Purple Mash software.  There were some fabulous entries and it was a very difficult decision to choose winners from the high standard of designs.  Here are some of those amazing entries:

Cross Country at King's College - 14/11/22

Thank you to the 11 children and their parents who turned up for their respective cross-country races at King''s College, considering our school had an inset day.  They all did amazingly well, especially those that ran faster than their last race in September.  Apologies for fewer photos this time due to focussing on watching them run rather than pressing the button!

Woodpeckers' Greek Day - 31/10/22




We were transported back to Ancient Greece for a day thanks to 'Portals to the Past'.


We listened to famous stories, myths and legends about the Ancient Greeks and their Gods & Goddesses.


We were fascinated by Archimedes' screw, enabling water to be transported uphill!!


We were perplexed by the intriguing puzzles from that time.





We prepared for battle by learning to march & then practised our battle maneouvres. 





We handled weapons and tried on armour, which would have been made to measure.



Finally we took part in our own version of the Ancient Greek Olympic Games.



KSM Harvest Festival - 17/10/22

The whole school was pleased to be warmly welcomed back to St Mary's Church to perform their Harvest songs & poem to parents for the first time since 2019.  The children all sang their hearts out & Woodpeckers sang some beautiful harmonies.  All our gifts were donated to the Open Door charity. 


Cross Country at King's College - 26/09/22

The large number of pupils across all age ranges took part in the Cross Country event at King's College.  They showed great determination and enjoyed participating for themselves and for the school.  Well done!
